          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe L-Arginine 500 MG - 100 Capsules:

          Use this L-Arginine to aid in managing my blood pressure, and it works great, I agree with everyone who writes about how great they feel taking it. My only concern is the pill casing, which comes apart way too easily. For someone who uses it by mixing it into a morning shake that would be great, but for someone like me who uses an organizer so I don't have to open a dozen pill bottles every morning, its a nightmare. Cleaning Arginine powder off of all my other supplements was not fun.

              Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe L-Arginine 500 MG - 100 Capsules:

              I've bought this product many times and this last time the capsules just come apart in the bottle. Called customer service to see if they would replace them and they said no cause it is over 30 days, which sometimes I buy several bottles and don't use them until I need it. This bottle has an exp. date of APR 2016 so it should still be good and I keep it in a cabinet with all my meds and everyone of them is fine except for this one. Very disappointed with the vitamin shoppe with the L-arginine and their customer service. Would not recommend this brand, buy another one.

              The capsules keep separating and spilling the contents. It is poorly made. I have had to throw away almost a third of the product.

                                Best Answer: In conjunction with a couple of other things, testosterone oil and secretegoge, it has been terrific. I don't have total confidence in it's efficacy by itself. It is, however, good for blood flow which helps in other areas (cardiovascular).

                                Best Answer: I don't know the answer to this. L-arginine is used by athletes for better performance due to increased blood flow, but not sure of its ability to build muscle fast.

                                I have heard through the grapevine that this product can help with hair growth as well. Any truth to that?
                                David D on Dec 31, 2013
                                Best Answer: L-Arginine is one of the essential amino acids used biologically to assist in many functions of the human body. Google the following: l-arginine biological effects and click on Pharmacodynamics of l-argining.
                                I have been taking l-arginine for probably three years for the main purpose of helping to increase the NO (nitrous Oxide) concentration levels in the blood system. This combined with two other supplements helps to keep the intimate parts of life alive. As far as helping with hair growth, personally haven't heard or read anything about that, but being an essential amino acid it sure wouldn't hurt any thing. I have used Biotin to some benefit with hair loss. You might want to try that. Hope this helps you answer your question. Ken

                                Is this product made up of acetyl L-carnitine (ALC) or propionyl-L-carnitine (PLC)?
                                STEPHEN B on Feb 21, 2013
                                Best Answer: Proprionyl-L-carnitine is a carnitine derivative. Acetyl-L-carnitine is, also a carnitine derivative. I have done some extensive search to try to see if L-argenine and any carnitine are related, and have foundnone. Dr. Weil writes about acetyl-L-carnitine"It is synthasized to provide a more bioavailable form of L-carnitine, which is a derivative of the amino acid lysine.

                                Medical Information on L-Arginine recommend to take 3-5 grams per day which in this case could be 6 pills yet the instructions state to take 1 pill per day (500mg). A it confusing?

                                L-ARGININE Dosing
                                The following doses have been studied in scientific research:

                                BY MOUTH:
                                For congestive heart failure: doses range from 6-20 grams per day, as three divided doses.
                                For chest pain associated with coronary artery disease (angina pectoris): 3-6 grams three times per day for up to one month.
                                For preventing the loss of the effectiveness of nitroglycerin in relieving pain in people with chest pain due to coronary artery disease (angina pectoris): 700 mg four times daily.
                                For organic erectile dysfunction (ED): 5 grams per day. Taking lower doses might not be effective.
                                For preventing inflammation of the digestive tract in premature infants: 261 mg/kg added to oral feedings daily for the first 28 days of life.
